USA: Project Development KBR Appoints Baker Hughes for Development of Mid-Scale LNG Design
The design of the mid-scale LNG facilities is expected to standardise around Baker Hughes’ proven gas turbine driver technologies which sfeature BHGE's LM2500+G5 and LM6000PF gas turbines.
Texas/USA – KBR has recently announced that it has selected Baker Hughes, a GE company, as part of the ongoing development of KBR's standardised mid-scale Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) design. The design utilises Conoco Phillips' Optimised Cascade technology as part of a broader partnership previously announced by KBR and COP.
The mid-scale LNG facilities designed under the agreement between KBR and BHGE will standardise around BHGE's proven gas turbine driver technologies, featuring BHGE's LM2500+G5 and LM6000PF gas turbines. Installed in KBR LNG facilities, these gas turbine technologies will provide ideal power ratings, speed and power flexibility, long maintenance intervals, and industry leading efficiencies.
Further enhancing client value, KBR and BHGE will leverage their unique experiences and service portfolios to provide standardised, low Capex LNG solutions for grassroots and existing LNG assets.
"BHGE and KBR have a well-established 40-year history and partnership successfully delivering LNG projects," said Farhan Mujib, KBR President, Hydrocarbons - Delivery Solutions. "This allows us to further enhance our cost effective standardised approach to LNG design, minimising Capex and Opex for our clients."
